MSI z77a-gd65 Led1

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I'm having a big issue that I have no idea how to fix. So I had a bad CPU I had replaced, and along with it bought this MSI mobo due to the original problem being thought to be the mobo. I've installed everything correctly, and the system upon plugging my power supply cord in automatically turns on. I can't turn it off no matter what I do unless I unplug the cord, or flip the switch on the power supply. The computer doesn't post either. It just hangs with Led1 turned on. In order to get it to post I have to reset bios, and unplug the pc for a little over a minute and cross my finger in hope that it works. Sometime it posts, other times it doesn't. The other way it seem to work is just by flipping my psu on/off repeatedly. The biggest problem is that if it does work, I can't restart my computer or even power it off because it won't shut down all the way. If I do either of this it'll return to the state of it not being to able to post.

Specs:

i7 2600k (not OCed)
16gb g1.sniper ram
128 Crucial SSD
1 TB Western Digital
720 Seagate PSU
GTX 680 FTW
Asus Xonar DX
AverMedia Streaming Card

What does LED1 mean. Did you look that up?

Do you have the 4/8 pin CPU power cable plugged into the motherboard?

Is it possible that you plugged an LED cable or something like that onto the power switch button (probably not but check).

I would unplug everything from the motherboard that is not required. That includes Front Panel USB, Front Panel Audio, Power/Reset, LEDs, Hard Drives, Video Card, USB Devices, ETC.

The only thing you should have in the board is 1 RAM module, CPU+Heatsink w/ fan plugged into CPU Header, Keyboard NO MOUSE, The 24 pin motherboard cable, the 4/8 pin CPU cable, and the monitor plugged into the motherboard.

Clear the CMOS using the jumper and make sure it is on the correct jumper after clearing it.


LED1 on an Asus board is CPU I believe but it has the word of what it is for next to it anyways.

I don't know what it is on Gigabyte but CHECK.


Start there and don't skip any those recommendations... Also I would turn it on without even the keyboard plugged in and then if you get a post go ahead and plug the keyboard in to get into the BIOS...

Let us know what happens from there.


Oh yeh and if it doesn't post with the one ram dimm then remove it and replace it with the other ram dimm. If it still doesn't boot plug the ram dimm into a different slot.
